Cornwall is getting a new safety warning after a girl was treated for suspected spinal injuries at a Cornish beach.

The teenager slipped on rocks out of sight of lifeguards at Treyarnon on Sunday.

Crews had to move her onto the beach to check her over, but she did not suffer any major injury.

Supervisor Leon Bennett said: "It continues to be a busy time for RNLI lifeguards in North Cornwall as visitors and locals make the most of what our county has to offer and in the last few days alone lifeguards have assisted people in rip currents and dealt with numerous minor first aid incidents. The charity encourages people to follow these top safety tips to ensure they have a safe and enjoyable time at the beach."

Here are five tips to help keep your family safe at the coast:

1. Swim at a lifeguarded beach, between the red and yellow flags
2. Never use inflatables in strong winds or rough seas
3. Check tide times before you go
4.  If you get into trouble, stick your hand in the air and shout for help
5.  If you see someone else in trouble, tell a lifeguard. If you can't see a lifeguard, call 999 or 112 and ask for the Coastguard.
